. texas already has. i think the highest rate of uninsured people are in texas. the answer from the left, i don't have an answer. people aren't in the streets protesting a lot of things they should be protesting but this is a situation where these are poor working poor people, they are busy. this is something they haven't gotten yet so it's not exactly being taken away from them. >> i just feel the pendulum has swung so far in the wrong direction in terms of the debate over this. we are talking about the governors that have said they're opting out of this, they have 29% of the total americans without health insurance in this country. the idea that not only are they not apologizing for this decision, but that they feel like they can sort of go out like yosemite sam with guns blazing and say this is equivalent to the titanic or the gestapo is shocking. >> it really is. i think we should say it simply. people are going to die because rick perry wants to run for president again or governors want to pander to the tea party. that's what's going to happen here. you have very poor people who are
today in a challenge to texas' voter i.d. law. the law would require texans to show government-issued photo identification in order to vote. the u.s. justice department says this would keep thousands from voting and violates the voting rights act. more now from anna werner. er.reporter: college students demarieno hill and dominique ndnday are registering voters in houston's third ward, a place where many minorities aren't eigned up to vote. it thank you. gn okay, then. >> reporter: they don't like the new law. >> we already have an uphill struggle to encourage people to register so now when we tell them they have to jump through these hoops it's more of a struggle. >> reporter: the law requires texas' 13 million voters to tresent a photo i.d. at the polls and not just any photo , on, only a driver's license, passport, military i.d., gun permit, or a state-issued identification card will be accepted. attorney general greg abbot says it's to combat election fraud. >> in this last election in may there were more than 200 votes cast for corpses and when you have dead people casting
, there is no fee. >> texas governor rick perry is the latest to reject the affordable care act. they want to stall or stop carrying out the requirements all together, calling it socialized medicine this will bankrupt his state. >> the bottom line is that medicaid is a failed program. to expand this program is not unlike adding 1,000 people to the titanic. >> there is a bottom line question. what does it mean to people who live in states like texas. msnbc's richard louie. >> more than half of the country's states who wanted to stop the affordable care act. even though the land's highest court upheld the law, in addition to the six governor, the brock o brookings institutions said they are refusing to execute the law. governor perry's refusal means 1.4 million people will not for now. on average, a person in this group i was showing you makes from around $3,000 a year up to just under $15,000. these are the poorest living on 26 to 133% of the poverty line and in addition rejecting medicaid, some are rejecting creating their own insurance exchanging, another of the law's requirements. these are desig
come states like california, texas, where hispanics make up over 30 prisoner of the undergraduate students. they also benefit places like the greatest percentage of the hispanic populations. young farmers in states like virginia demint florida, new york, texas, colorado and in mexico and arizona, nevada, virginia, north carolina, georgia will see a portion benefits from the newly authorized educational program. i may have left out some of the states but texas is in there and hopefully i mentioned that as well. we know the population in america is aging according to 70% of all farmers over the age of 55. by investing in young people that already know the agriculture and giving them the skills and education they need we can help build our next generation of farmers in america i would urge my colleagues to support this amendment and invest in the future of the agricultural here in america. i yield back. >> he yields back. i would simply no to that i believe the gentleman is making great effort here. we may have a little perfecting work to do on the language of the gentleman has -- is
home state of texas. he is going to turn down the affordable care act money that his citizens would get to enjoy if he actually accepted it. it will cost his own citizens billions of dollars, but rick perry says this. >> we have some of the finest health care in the world, i mean some incredible healthcare facilities in this country, so the idea that this federal government -- which doesn't like texas to begin with to pick and choose and come up with data to say that texas has the worst health care system in the world is just false on its face. >> it is not the worst in the world. it is the worst in the united states. here let me show you the states here. this would be the amount of states -- oh look at this, the number of people insured, the percentages are pretty good up top. but, oh, here is number 50 texas. now if you are a donor to rick perry, you don't care because you are rich. you don't care about the 26% of the population that doesn't have insurance. but over a quarter of the population not in great shape would be helped tremendously. that's 6.6 milli
now, states have a ton of leeway to decide who is and who isn't eligible for medicaid. texas, the they only cover adults at 26% of the poverty line. it's $11,170 a year. so you could be a single person making $3,000 a year and you're not poor enough to qualify for medicaid. that's part of the reason texas has the highest uninsured rate in the entire nation. in massachusetts, by contrast, they cover working adults up to 133% of the poverty level. this is due to a former governor whose name rhymed with smitt sromney. everyone making up to 133% of the poverty line, they get medicaid automatically. right now, the federal government pays about 57% of medicaid's costs. states pick up the rest. and that's a good enough deal that every single state participates. in the affordable care act for the first three acts, the feds will cover 100% of the difference between wherever the state is now and where the law wants them to go 100%. after 2020, that drops a bit, but only drops to 90%. for every dollar the state puts in, the feds will put in $9. it's an incredible deal. the less you have
much better after that. while governor romney was enjoying a cheer down in texas, house speaker john boehner was bringing his former swagger to the house floor. aiming to bring down the affordable care act with yet another pointless house vote and igniting the usual fireworks. >> this law continues to mack our economy worse and there is even more resolve to see it is fully repeal. >> welcome to groundhog day. >> they are voting for wealth care for the most profitable industries in the history of the united states of america. >> what a valentine to the health insurance industry. >> obamacare also has disastrous implications for the moral fabric of our nation. >> welcome to groundhog day. >> and here's the good news. the voters get the last word in november. stay tuned. >> we will stay tuned, indeed. joining us now here in new york is msnbc contributor jonathan capehea capeheart. clarence page of "the chicago tribune." jonathan writes for "the washington post." good day to both of you. have to ask you both this question. i want to start with you, john, was mitt romney really addressing
. it makes sense. but then, you have a guy like republican texas governor rick perry come along and say something like this: >> texas wasn't going to be a part of it expanding socializing of our medicine. so we are not going to participate in exchanges. we are not going to expand medicaid. we are just for the going to be a part of, again socializing health care in the state of texas. >> so in addition to losing out on billions in money to cover their uninsured, texas is going to lose $17,000,000,000 in special federal funds that would support hospitals who care for the uninsured. and their hospitals are going to get slammed. nearly 1 in 4 texans are uninsured, the most in the nation. now, 6 republican governors have decided not to take the health care money, not to opt in including texas and florida, two of the biggest states in the nation. in total, nearly 4 million people from those 6 states will lose health care coverage by their failure to opt in. joying me to discuss the predictament for hospitals in particular is bruce siegel, the ceo of the nati

the justice department will challenge texas' proposed law that would require voters to show identification. last hour on "starting point" we heard from one texas lawmaker who scoffs at claims that minorities are being unfairly targeted. >> what we really want are people eligible to vote. we want them to get to the polls and register to vote. we don't want those who are dead. we want actual real ballots from real people and this law does that. >> joe johns joins us now. what's the core issue before the court today? >> reporter: this is a texas case and the question in court is about ensuring the integrity of the ballot versus making sure voting rights of minorities are protected. it will be determined by your party affiliation. republicans arguing for a long time now that voter fraud is a big problem. we've heard that argument and so something numerous states have enacted laws that require voters to present photo identification though some have been challenged. democrats say a lot of democratic voters especially segments of the african-american and hispanic populations tend to lack the kind
united. that decision is incomprehensible to me. host: fort worth, texas. caller: i disagree with the decision and i think it's more about, you know, what the doctors need and not what insurance companies need and i think, you know, they've got to have a term limit for them judges and they ought to be elected by the people and not by one party or the president, you know. host: why would that change things? caller: because then the people have the power instead of the president having the power. and that's the way our government's supposed to be. it's supposed to be -- the government's supposed to represent us and they're not doing that. host: mckinney, texas. this is corina, democrats line. caller: yes. this is corina. i was calling to actually hear -- for everyone that's speaking about the medicare and who should -- let's say over what. but i believe the government stepping in and trying to do something for people such as myself who do not have, you know, medical insurance is very, very happy because of the obama act -- affordable act. i think it's great. i think the republi
with this legislation. california, texas, new york saying we want to be able to do this but we also don't want to change our sales tax rules to have some kind of uniformity for these interstate transactions taking place, and that is what comes back on the shoulders of the congress because we have the ultimate responsibility for writing the law, related to interstate commerce and doing so in a fair manner not only for the brick and mortar businesses but also for the small businesses that are at this point in time i think still confronted with a very complex many thousands of multitudes more complex than a business in in your state or another state numbing what the state's requirements are and only having to meet the requirements of the state. so i commend the author of the legislation, and i commend all of you for trying to find a way to simplify. but i would urge you to work further to bring about more simplification in terms of a definition to each state that wants to purchase of in this, we have one definition. i would prefer to see one rate, three is better than 9,000 some. but i would prefer to see

that amount to more in a tax break than a median income family in central texas earns in an entire year. that will just continue to destart the gap between the very rich and rest of the country and it will not grow jobs. >> i have to tell you though, the contrast from steve king who we spoke to earlier today from iowa, is pretty sharp and shows these two, talking about fairness in a completely different light. i want you to listen to what he said. the fairness issue is not about the rich paying more, it's about everyone else paying their fair share. listen. >> if they are not going to work and there's a number approaching 100 million americans of working age not in the workforce and that includes the 13 million that are unemployed, some can't do anything about it. some aren't willing to do anything about that. when you add that up, roughly a third of americans of working age are not contributing to the gross domestic product to the united states. >> he talks about class envy. that's what you're going to hear. that's what you're going to be hearing a lot from the gop this week, sir, that
